Jerry was planning to run that one. That sucks. I don't suppose there are many good backup options this time of year either?

There's a marathon on Sunday in College Station, about 3-1/2 hours south of Dallas, but I don't know if it sold out (it has it's first 2 years) or if Jerry would be too 'lazy' to drive...if he could even get out of Dallas.

I picked 4 packages before the decision. 

I suppose I will be refunded the registration fee?

Edit: nope. $143 out.

Ugh! Sorry, Jerry.

I'd suggest the Tecumseh Trail Marathon, but even those crazy Hoosier trail folks canceled the event because of snow, ice and super-cold temperatures.

Yea, what's up with that.  What's the harm in a little snow?

Huge difference between running for time vs fun or slow, really slow but long...

The Dallas freeway system is packed with high overpasses that freeze over.  So driving to the event would be TV gold for spinouts and slides.  Don't know about the dem Hoosiers.

Tucson and CIM are on. Jerry can't get out of Dallas though. There are marathons coming up in Houston (end if the world) and Ft. Worth
